Biggest issue with the series is that the "second class citizen" issue of the Dampires. The series ends and everybody seems psyched that 16 year olds don't have to go off and fight and the "they come first" thinking is still in place. What about lack of voting capability etc.???
Otherwise the series was OK. What is with the leather duster? Seems like an extremely stupid, clumsy piece of equipment for this dude to insist on wearing. Why not a cowboy hat?
Also, some of the accents were goofy. Although, I appreciate silly accents over all of the characters sounding the same.
The series started out good and made a great set up with good characters. As the series went on the quality of the story started to diminish and began to be like every other book. On a whole the series was clean and is a good read for young people.
I usually do not write many reviews. But I love this series and go back to it like a friend I miss. I love the characters and plots. It is not as predictable as most series are. I usually know the end when I start a book. Or know where the writer is going to go.
I have seen reviews that it is not suited for children. With my understanding it is for young adults and therefore if you are open with your kids. It's fiction. But it touch some areas where your young adults probably already know of.
I will continue to listen and enjoy this series along with the alchemist ones. I love them and recommend them to any who enjoy a new twist on old standards.
I hope many enjoy them as I do.
I love this story. I have read it and listened numerous times and it is just as good each time I listen. Michelle is a writing genius.
The woman reading this audiobook was very impressive, she handled all of the different characters and accents very very well!
And of course an awesome story to end a great series!
I absolutely loved this series, especially this book. It's an excellent end to the series. I wish there was more to the epilogue. The end of this book leads very nicely into the bloodlines series. The narrator does an excellent job with the different voices. This audio book is well worth the money
